A quick update

We're all moved in to our new house (finally)! The rental house has been cleaned (not by us, thankfully, we hired some housecleaners) and Collin is meeting with the landlord on Thursday to give back our keys and etc. We're in the midst of changing addresses on everything and just got our new mailbox keys today.

We love this house and are just awestruck every day by the fact that it's ours.

Baby seems to be growing well and has started kicking the heck out of me. :) Elanor and William got absolutely spoiled this Christmas and have many new toys. All in all, things are going very well for us! Now that we're somewhat settled, I'll try to update more often.

It's official!

We are homeowners!

The closing finally went through. Collin just picked up the keys from our realtor. The house is ours!

Thanks be to God!

I'm alive, I promise

Sorry for the lack of updates lately, but we're swamped right now what with the big move coming up. We should (finally) close on the house next week, and then the moving starts. Our lease is up December 31 so we need to be out of our current place by then.

We were hoping to paint the kitchen of our new place prior to moving in, but I'm not sure if we'll have the time now. We still need to purchase appliances as well -- we spent all last evening shopping (just looking and comparing prices for now). Plus there's Christmas shopping to do, so I wouldn't expect many updates from me until January or so.

St. Joseph (patron of homebuyers/sellers), pray for us!
